The city of Adelaide is not only the gateway to some of the most popular wine regions in Australia, including the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra, but it is also an incredible destination in its own right. Culture, art, food and nightlife combine to create a chic, relaxed atmosphere that makes this one of the most beloved cities in Australia.

During the day, attractions and excitement abound. The city is awash with excellent beaches, many of which boast cool beach bars and fantastic dining options just a stone's throw from the sand. Adelaide Zoo is perennially popular with visitors young and old, a host of museums give a fascinating insight into the history of the area, and avid shoppers will be spoilt for choice with the vast number of options available, from sprawling malls and outlet centres to chicer-than-chic independent fashion boutiques. Regular farmer's markets draw in visitors and residents from all over the region with their incredible selections of high-quality local produce. Rundle Mall is the busiest and most popular shopping destination in the city, with over 700 units along one road.

One thing Adelaide is particularly renowned for is its thriving arts scene, with countless festivals, celebrations and live music events taking place throughout the year. Alongside some fascinating museums such as the South Australian Maritime Museum and the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, the city's various live venues play host to some incredible live events; the Adelaide Festival of Arts (or Adelaide Festival for short) is runs through February and March is year and is renowned as one of the biggest and best celebrations of the arts on the globe. Film, dance, opera, comedy and much more besides all take centre stage as the Aussies celebrate all that is great about their creative culture. There's also festivals focused on food, wine, and live music, with some of the world's biggest acts regularly taking to the stage here.

As night falls, the city is transformed into a vibrant, bustling metropolis with excellent food and super-cool bars around every corner. Some of the best and most awarded restaurants in Australia can be found here alongside more intimate eateries and light bites. Wine bars of course are in abundance, as well as a fantastic selection of bars offering everything from rooftop views to creative cocktails. Pair this with the vast range of excellent accommodation on offer to guarantee you a good night's sleep, and you can rest assured that a few days in Adelaide is time very well spent!

Best Known Grapes
